"Voglar" is the ancient name of the area where the company's vineyards are located. The term derives from the Trentino dialect expression “fogolar”, that is hearth.
Originally the vineyards were planted with Schiava, a local grape variety, which between 1988 and 1991 was completely replaced by Sauvignon blanc.
Careful studies and research on this variety have led to the conclusion that Voglar's position, altitude and calcareous nature constitute the favorable premise for the production of an excellent white wine.
The relatively high hill favors the complete physiological ripening of the grapes without loss of acidity and aromas. The goal is to obtain a wine with complex aromas of tropical fruit that express the grape variety of origin, avoiding vegetal and immature hints; slightly acidic, with backbone, body and structure that can withstand a fair aging in the bottle.

LOCALITY : Terrace slopes located between 500 and 600 m from Penone, a fraction of Cortaccia. The vineyards are exposed to the Northeast, East and South. The cultivated area is 3 hectares. The soil is sandy in nature with a strong presence of limestone skeleton of Dolomite origin.

VARIETY : Sauvignon Blanc with a density between 5,000 - 7,500 plants per hectare depending on the slope; the training system is the simple cordon (Guyot).

WINE : The harvest falls towards the middle / end of September.
Alcoholic fermentation lasts about ten days and takes place in large acacia barrels from 19 to 58 hl. Malolactic fermentation is avoided and the wine remains on the fermentation lees in the barrels until the month of May following the harvest.
In the first 3 months following fermentation, a battonage is performed every 10 days.
The wine is then bottled and remains in the cellar until January of the following year before being placed on the market. The annual production is around 30,000 bottles and the first vintage produced is 1990.
